CANCELLED – The Oxbow – Saturday, March 21, 2020. TO BE RESCHEDULED.

PENDING – The Highlands Nature Sanctuary – Saturday, April 25, 2020
This is a 2,600-acre nature preserve owned and managed by the non-profit Arc of Appalachia. It features 15 trails providing access to the scenic geology, well preserved forests and exceptional spring wildflowers of the region. The trip will meet at the TJ Maxx parking lot at 7:30 am for a 2-hour drive to the sanctuary. Pack a picnic lunch or snacks if desired. We will plan to enjoy lunch inside the Nature Center. If traveling directly to the site, the destination address is 7660 Cave Rd., Bainbridge OH 45612. Information about Arc of Appalachia and the Sanctuary is available here. Beginning in 1995, the Arc has acquired over 1,600 acres of forest habitats and currently stewards twenty preserve regions. 

PENDING – Hunter/Huffmeier Property – Sunday, May 10,2020
This will be another delightful visit to the rural Indiana property of our hosts, Kathy Hunter and Ron Huffmeier. The land, located just to the west of Brookville Lake, features stunning old-growth forest along with open grassy areas and lovely streams. We are sure to find a nice variety of birds while walking through this attractive setting. Pack a lunch, and we will dine on the deck of Kathy and Ron’s home overlooking the woods. We’ll leave at 8:00am from the west end of the Wal Mart parking lot (on US 27, north of Oxford) and return to Oxford after lunch.
